solea mactan cebu resort

Solea, also a Spanish word for elevated land, is a mid-range family resort in Cordova, Cebu that has started providing a beautiful getaway for locals and tourists for a year now. When I first arrived at the resort, I immediately thought that it's one of those overly expensive resorts in the region. Don't fret though, because Solea is worth it!

I've never been to a tea party. I don't even drink tea at all (except maybe iced tea) so when I got an invite for Cebu Marriott Hotel's Tea Party, I immediately wanted to join. First, I could bring Reiko with me and it would serve as our bonding time. Second, I'm actually writing content about tea (and coffee) for my client's website so I thought it would be cool to experience what I've been reading for quite some time now.

I'm a fan of photographing the wonderful things that you can see in your neighborhood, nearby towns, or anywhere near you. Most of the time, I tell myself that I don't really have to go far to take interesting photos which I think is true. But as someone who loves adventures, I'm always itching to see something new. Something outside of my comfort zone!

I love colors. This explains why I rarely use black, white, gray, or anything super dark in my photos. Usually, my photos are of different hues because that's how I want them to be. In the course of my daily experimentation with photography, sometimes I get bored with the usual blue, green, or brown colors.

One thing I've learned about photo blogging is that you've got to extend your material or your photos to your social media sites too. And I believe that doesn't only apply to photo blogging alone. It also applies to all forms of blogging. Being a photography enthusiast, it's not surprising that I love Instagram! In fact, I've been closely monitoring my blog Instagram account ever since I started it last year.

I can't believe it's so tough to plan a trip, not to mention an international trip wherein you aren't very familiar of how things work. Last year, when I went on a 10-day backpacking trip outside the country, most of the planning was done by my friend who was very willing and able to do it. I had so much trust in him too that I knew he would do great with the plan. He did!

Where do you usually share your photos? Millions of photos are shared to social media every second, minute, or hour. For a hobbyist like me, I share my photos in quite a lot of social media networks. Some serve as my mini-portfolio, some as my storage space, some are just for personal sharing, and others turn out to be my sources of wealthy inspiration - a feast to the eyes and soul!

I've always admired different types of visual arts - obviously, photography is one that I admire most. I also admire the work that photographers put into their masterpieces.
